About our school

Our school represents over a century of endeavour by many, to contribute to the development of young pupils of the district.

The buildings may have changed from the old wooden Kindergarten rooms to the more modern brick buildings established in 1990, however the community spirit which saw the establishment of golden elms, camphor laurels and pin oaks to transform the grounds into a beautiful haven for all, still exists today. The strong partnership of staff, students, parents and community members is very proud of its achievements. Improvement in student learning outcomes is supported by provision of a diverse range.

School Vision Statement

Students at Lawson Public School are provided with excellent educational experiences, in a safe and caring setting whereby they are supported to develop to their full potential, across all areas of their schooling.

A culture of inclusivity, respect and acceptance of individuality is fostered across all levels of the school community.  The school core values ('At Lawson Public School we are Safe, Respectful, Responsible Learners') are reflective of the school's commitment to ensuring quality teaching and learning experiences are provided within a safe, caring, positive learning environment.

Students are consistently encouraged to think and act responsibly and respectfully and this, together with the strong emphasis on positive connections between the school, home and community will equip students to live and achieve in a rapidly changing world.

Our school vision aligns with the Melbourne Declaration.
